Monday Mess

Today’s workout can be filed under: ohmygodwhatthehellhappenedtothishouse?!

You know it’s been a busy weekend when the house is a disaster on Monday morning.

I knew a rest day was in order when I wasn’t pumped about my run yesterday. Even though I was glad I ran after I got going, my reluctance was also my sign that it was time for a day off.

I swapped today’s work out time for an hour of getting caught up house work and then another hour catching up on emails and cleaning up my desk. Around 8 I felt hungry enough for breakfast.

Today’s cold oatmeal delight was chocolate overnight oats.


1/2+ cup of rolled oats soaked over night in 1/2 c unsweetened chocolate almond milk, 1/4 c Stonyfield Farm LF vanilla yogurt, 1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder. Topped this morning with about a tablespoon of ground flax, almond butter, a sprinkle of yesterdays homemade granola and sliced bananas!


With organic coffee and a few glugs of organic 1% milk.

I had gotten the family room partially picked up but it was all undone upon the rising of the two primary mess makers in the house!


You think you are tidy. You think you are organized. And then you have kids.


I think Ava was mirroring the look on my face! ;)

Back at it. Good thing I’m fueled up, I’m gonna need it.

  1. My kids are professionals at destroying our living room while I am cleaning another room. Saturday night, date night, was spent cleaning while the kids were sleeping and now I struggle to keep it clean.

  2. yeah, that’s one thing I’m not looking forward to :)
